EPIC - Volunteers Needed This Thursday

The Eviction Prevention and Intervention Coalition ("EPIC") is a brand new collaboration between the MBA, MBF, the Montgomery County Housing and Community Development Office, and the courts. The 6-month pilot program is designed to provide free, limited representation to tenants facing eviction in Magisterial District Court 38-1-16 (Hon. Margaret Hunsicker, Norristown). EPIC utilizes the services of pro bono attorneys to provide same day, limited representation to tenants facing eviction in order to stabilize vulnerable households in the Norristown community who have historically limited access to legal representation.

Now is a great time to play a role in this groundbreaking program. We are in desperate need of 2 volunteers for this Wednesday's shift - Please consider helping us help some of the most vulnerable residents of our community!
